The 20-year-old striker, who is a free agent after leaving Ipswich Town, has featured in all of the Spireites’ three pre-season games.

He came off the bench at half-time against Matlock Town and scored, started at Alfreton Town and was lively and put in another bright performance as a second-half substitute against Sheffield Wednesday on Tuesday night.

Blues fans should get another look at him on Saturday when Sheffield United visit the SMH Group Stadium.

When asked what happens next with him, coach Danny Webb told the DT: “I think it is a continuation of training, when he came in he had done no training with a team, so he is still finding his feet.

"He has been doing some extra work with the fitness team every day in training.

"It will be the manager’s decision but from my point of view, and us as staff, he is a great kid, he has done some really good things in games and in training and hopefully we will get to see a bit more of him as the weeks go on.”
